Location of Sighting: Bullockstone Road/Owls Hatch Road
Date of Sighting: 27/06/2010
Witness Name: Geoff Ward
Witness Statement: Travelling from Bullockstone Road (south) towards Herne Bay High School, spotted a bright orange orb which appeared to be at extremely high altitude very slowly moving forwards towards the direction we were coming from. As the object was moving along it appeared to be ‘dropping’ or discharging very small bright lights from its underside as though dropping flares?
This is one of numerous sightings of a similar nature I and my family have seen in and around Herne Bay. Usually these orange orbs are out at sea and not inland, however I don’t submit to this rubbish about Chinese lanterns. These orange orbs are capable of changing direction and moving CONTRARY to the wind, also a lanter will tend to flicker whereas these orbs remain solid and do not flicker.
Also they appear to move as though under propulsion of some kind, even when there is very little or no wind, a chinese lantern would not be able to move at such apparent speed when there is no wind.
These sightings should really be investigated as they are becoming more and more numerous and it’s really rather disturbing.
